When Ultrasound Shows Patchy Heterogeneity Of Thyroid
Thyroid ultrasound shows heterogenous hypervascular echogenicity. No nodules. Thyroid labs were normal. Any ideas on what this is?
What thyoid labs?: There are many thyroid labs and most docs do not check enough of them? This ultrasound is consistent with grave's disease and thyroiditis. With grave's standard thyroid tests would usually be abnormal but might look ok with thyroiditis. Please make sure anti-thyroid antibodies (anti-tpo and anti-thyroglobulin) have been checked, as well as free t3 (liothyronine) and reverse t3 (liothyronine). ...Read more
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more
Thyroid ultrasound showed heterogenous echogenicity hypervascular thyroid. Thyroid labs normal. Any thoughts on what this is?
My thyroid is underactive. My ultrasound showed diffusely heterogeneous echo pattern, diffusely heterogeneous hypervascular thyroid gland, no thyroid enlargement, no evidence of focal abnormality, no evidence of cyst, mass or calcification. I have been pu
Recent thyroid ultrasound with results of hyperechoic nodule at the left lower thyroid, and heterogeneous echotexture. What happens next?
I had an ultrasound scan: The thyroid gland is severly and diffusely heterogeneous. Moderate hypervascularity. No focal or measurable thyroid nodule.
Thyroid ultrasound show mild diffused parenchymal hyper vasuclarity.3mm hyperechoic nodule in the lateral aspect in the left lobe thyroid normal > tsh?
Possibly thyroiditis: Hypervascularity is a typical finding in people with underlying autoimmune thyroiditis (hashimoto's or graves disease). The 3 mm nodule is likely of no significance and can be watched. You need to know your TSH level. Getting thyroid antibodies (thyroid peroxidase, thyroglobulin antibodies) would be helpful in making a diagnosis. ...Read more
My wife had a thyroid ultrasound and showed heterogenous echogenicity, hypervascular thyroid gland.No masses or nodules. Any thoughts on what this is?
Could be Hashimoto's: Is the gland normal is size or enlarged? If normal-sized, could be hashimoto's. If enlarged it could be grave's disease, both of which are autoimmune diseases. She should find out if she's hypo- or hyperthyroid and have additional testing to see if she has hashimoto's. ...Read more
I have done USGthyroid.normal thyroid and isthumus show diffusely altered heterogeneous echotexture. Vascularity present.no lesion nor calcification.
Thyroid function?: Hi. What prompted the thyroid ultrasound? Sounds like no nodule, so thyroid cancer is not the issue here. Heterogeneous echo texture is non-specific, but certainly can be seen in Hashimoto's. Do you have normal thyroid function? Even if so, you could check TPO & thyroglobulin antibodies to see if there's evidence of autoimmune thyroiditis. Good luck! ...Read more

Diffusely heterogeneous thyroid gland with multiple bilateral hypo echoic micro nodules. Increased vascularity.
What does this ultra sound result mea?
Thyroidologist: A thyroidologist or endocrinologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you about your thyroid status and ultrasound findings and to determine whether a needle biopsy and/or referral to a thyroid surgeon is advisable. As a rule multiple nodules are more apt to be benign as opposed to a single cold nodule in males. Follow-up in these cases are also important even after the first consultation. ...Read more
Sono showed dominant nodule is a heterogeneous nodule. Evidence of hypoechoic on left and right lobes. Multinodular goiter with all nodules over 1cm. Can this be thyroid cancer.

Thyroid: What have your doctors said about this. There are many options that include surgery or doing nothing. You can rely on your doctors for your management. If your thyroid levels are OK and your thyroid gland is not very enlarged it would be OK to have nothing done aside from regular examination. ...Read more

It means: It is normal.Get a more detailed answer ›
Heterogeneous thyroid, my ultrasound stated that diffusely heterogeneous thyroid with no discrete cystic or solid nodule identified.
May be autoimmune: Heterogeneous thyroid on ultrasound refers to a thyroid that looks mottled with both dark and light areas throughout. This is a typical finding in people with autoimmune thyroid disease such as hashimoto's thyroiditis or grave's disease. It sounds like there is nothing suspicious that would require biopsy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
